Xbox One Insider Preview build 16262 is now available in the Alpha ring - here's what's new

It's been over a week since Xbox Insiders on the Preview Alpha ring got their first taste of the Fall update, and today, they're getting their second build. Today's build number is 16262.1008, or 1710.17813-1700.

Microsoft didn't note any new features, but one Reddit user did see one. If you go to My Games & Apps, you can now filter by games that are built for 4K, HDR, and have been enhanced for the company's upcoming Xbox One X console.

As you'd expect, there's also a range of fixes:

  • Home

    • Resolved an issue which could cause unexpected navigation when using LT and RT on the dashboard.

    • Home should no longer crash when attempting to edit, move, or delete content blocks.

    • Miscellaneous fixes and improvements for Home.

  • Games & Apps
    Fixed an issue which caused errors when transferring games and apps between external hard drives.

  • Controller
    A new controller firmware update is available for Xbox One controllers with Bluetooth. You can manually download the update from Settings > Kinect & devices > Devices & accessories > Device info.

And of course, there are some known issues to be aware of:

  • Child Accounts

    • Screen time limits for child accounts may not be enforced.

    • Granting a child account permission to access a game or app may fail to launch the game or app.

  • App Updates
    The Store (and other apps) may fail to update, although the apps still launch successfully.

  • Home

    • The delete (trash can) icon on Suggested Home content blocks does not function.

    • When Netflix (and other games or apps with light backgrounds) is launched and displayed in the large tile on the Home screen, the white text underneath is obscured.

Previews for the Fall update are still only available in the Alpha ring, but it's worth keeping in mind that you no longer need an invitation to sign up for the Beta or Delta (previously Ring 3) rings. If you've not been invited to join Alpha, you can get into Beta if you've been an Insider for three months and have reached Level 4. You still won't get Fall update builds right away, but you'll be next in line.
